Dupuytren's Contracture
« on: September 29, 2014, 12:18:34 PM »

Has anyone experienced Dupuytren's Contracture? 
It is a related illness that affects the hands (see Dupuytrens contracture - an overview )
Any response would be appreciated!

Yes. I have Dupuytrens in addition to Peyronies Disease. I had surgery for the Peyronies Disease. I expect that one day I will also have surgery for the Dupuytrens. The two are evil cousins, as well a Lederhosen Syndrome.

mrod:

Along with others on the forum, I too have had Dupuytren's Contractures since the age of 55 or maybe before (did not know what they were then).

I also have Lederhose effect in both feet. As far as I know and am told by doctors all three of these conditions are attributed to the same family of bodily defects. None seem to know what causes them nor do they have any good therapy or treatments for them.

I got rid of my Peyronies Disease through a year's daily VED sessions of 15 to 20 minutes each. These symptoms have not returned since my therapy in the late 1990s. Normal erections are now possible even at the age of 85. I attribute that ability to the VED therapy ( several times a week now ) which keeps the old tool much more healthy. I can achieve a very good erection normally, but use a cock ring to hold it up long enough for sex.

My father who has Peyronie's also has Dupuytren's. My pinkies are always a bit tight but no real sign yet!

My father didn't get his till his 60s, while his Peyronie's came in his late 20s (as did mine). It seemed to slowly happen over multiple years, keep your pinkies and fingers stretched. I recommend stretching daily, as do many doctors. Do not stretch the tips of your fingers.

Same as me. I had a start of Duputiens, have a few nods in my left palm, but luckily stoped.

Dupuytrens runs in my family, thankfully I haven't developed it. I do have plantar fibromatosis/ledderhose in both feet though, and other fibrotic masses in my fingers which have required surgery. Its all interrelated.

My sister was just diagnosed with Dupuytrens. She went to who she said was one of the top specialist in California who said they treat it with jellyfish enzymes. Never heard of this...if so, would it work for Peyronies? Anyone heard? She doesn't know about my Peyronies Disease so I didn't get into an involved discussion on it. Buckeye

I never heard about this treatment, but if it will work for Duputiens (don't know the correct spelling) it will work (in my opinion) for Peyronies also.
What is the delivery system of this cream?

James,

Sorry, I don't know how it's applied. I'll ask more about it the next time I see her which will probably be Christmas time.

It's possible that the story conflated the use of Papain (an enzyme derived from Papaya skin, also used as a food-grade meat tenderizer) to treat Dupuytren's Contracture. Papain is sometimes also applied topically to treat jellyfish stings.
